The Week Ahead…& Some Photos from the Past Week

Pink Taco inched closer to opening in Navy Yard.  Last Monday night, ANC6D voted to support a stipulated liquor license for the popular Mexican food chain outlet coming to 100 M Street, SE.  The stipulated license means they don’t have to wait for an ABRA hearing before starting to serve alcohol.  Currently, there are Pink Tacos in Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, and Miami, with plans on the table to open in NYC later this year.  No word yet on when it will in open in Navy Yard open other “this spring.”  You can take a look at the menus for the restaurants already open here: Redering: Pink Taco

Meanwhile, over on Pennsylvania Avenue and Third Street, SE, Spike Mendelsohn’s relocation of Santa Rosa is also moving forward.  Activity has picked up on the buildout and furniture has been placed on the Third Street side sidewalk café.  Neighbors are viewing the outdoor speakers for the sidewalk café with suspicion if not alarm.

Temperatures in the low 20’s on Saturday afternoon created this ice fountain at 11th and East Capitol SE, next to Wine & Butter.

There’s been progress on the Ebenezer Town Homes in the 400 Block of D Street, SE.
